One of the Loire’s most prestigious estates, Moulin Touchais has been farmed by the Touchais family since 1787. The vineyards, on south facing slopes along the valley of the river Layon, are planted with Chenin Blanc. The wines, made from carefully selected, late picked grapes are very pure, opulently sweet but with good balancing acidity. Aged for a minimum of 10 years before release they develop beautifully in bottle.
You will taste 6 vintages of this rare wine, including the ’03, ’02, ’97, 96, ’86 and ’85 preceded by a fine Savennieres (the Chenin that smells sweet but tastes dry) from Baumard and a barrel aged Anjou Blanc from Chateau des Fesles..
